Sorry to hear of your loss, Phillis emailed me with the news. Gary was my inspiration for joining the marines. I remember Gary from growing up in Wisconsin. I always looked up to him. I looked him up while in Okinawa.

I lost a very dear friend and fellow Marine, Master Gunnery Sergeant Gary A. Sorenson 0811/0812/2362. This last 40 years, he has been a friend, mentor and my hero. He served two tours in Vietnam and Desert Storm, his 30 years of service to this great nation was something everyone should admire. I am no hero but I have walked among a few and Gary you are one of them. Semper fi my brother, one day we will meet again.
